Lechner Family History, compiled by Michael Lechner, with my father Ted Harrold Lechner.
John Woodbury was born in Somerset, England around 1579. Along with Richard Norman (above), John became involved with the Dorchester Co. He sailed on the ship Zouch Phenix, which is said to have arrived in Salem in the Spring of 1624. John's son Humphrey made the following deposition in 1680:
I understood that my...father came to new England by order of a company caled Dorchester company…& that my father and the company with him brought cattle & other things to Cape Ann for plantation work & there built an house & kept theire cattell & sett up fishing & afterwards some of them removed to a neck of land since called Salem: After about 3 yeares absence my said father returned to England & made us acquainted with what settlement they had made in new England & that he was sent back by some that Intended to setle a plantation about 3 leagues west of Cape Ann. to further this designe after about half a years stay in England, my father returned to new England & brought me with him: wee arrived at the place now caled Salem in or about the month of June 1628 [in the ship Abigail]…when wee settled the Indians never then molested us in our improvemts or sitting downe either on Salem or Beverly side of the ferry, but shewed themselves very glad of our company & came & planted by us & oftentimes came to us for shelter saying they were afraid of their enemy Indians up in the country: & wee did shelter them when they fled to us. & wee had theire free leave to build & plant where wee have taken up lands.
A tradition handed down says that when Gov. Endicott arrived in Massachusetts, the ship caught on a sand bar near the shore. John and another man, who must have gone out to the ship, carried Endicott to the shore on their shoulders to spare him the embarassment of arriving in the colony in a bedraggled state.
John married Annis Napper in 1628, while he was back in England. She joined him in Massachusetts. They had the following children: John (1629), Hannah (1636), Abigail (1637), and Peter (1640).
John held several town offices including selectman and representative to the General Court. He is listed among the first members of the church built in 1636.
